Jens Freiter

At first, Jens Freiter wanted to be a maths and physics teacher, but at university he soon realized he was more into computers.

He got his first experiences of the world wide web as a web designer and software developer. Together with four friends, Jens started Holidaycheck. A few years later, the travel rating portal became one of the most successful online travel agency in the German-speaking countries. It was awarded the best travel-related website on serveral occasions.

In 2006, the five friends sold Holidaycheck to Tomorrow Focus. Jens stayed with the company as CTO until 2007. Today, Jens is a business angel and investor for IT-start-ups. He also works as a consultant helping companies develop their online communities and marketing. On the side, he’s trying his hand at raising two daughters.
